Illusions: Evolution and the Revolution of the Magic Box - Paul Osborne - SIGNED
From the Preface of this 241-page book the author writes: "This book is an illustrated history of illusion. It points to the future of illusion and illusion thinking. I have included some methods of creating new miracles with props you may already have and you will find thirteen never-before-seen plans for illusions that would support my theories of the revolution that is taking place in the world of illusion; creating, building, and performing. I have also included a chapter on my life in that I have been rolling around props since my childhood days. I wanted to focus on illusions as they relate to show business with this book and I couldn't honestly do that without revealing my past and plugging you into the most creative people that make up my chemistry. I hope that this assembly of words at the proper time will effect your life as they have effected mine. Many great folks in the world of illusion have helped with this volume including: Jim Steinmeyer, Tim White, Rand Woodbury, David Copperfield, Ben Robinson, Bev Bergeron, Bruce Chadwick, Bill Smith, David Charvet, John Moehring, Gloria Marcom, Ralph Adams, Brian and Micky Hades, David Thomason, The Blasckstone family, Tim Kole, and Mark Kalin. I hope that this book will be the leader in a thought pattern that we all must adapt if magic and illusions are to grow and prosper." Included throughout are photos and diagrams illustrating each illusion described.
